More PlayStation 5 information reveals $69.99 price point for games, launch lineup, and PS4 versions
More post-event news is cropping up, after the debut of today's PlayStation Showcase. Not only did we learn that the console will be launching this November, we also got to see the price: $399.99. Sony also revealed that certain PlayStation 5 games will retail for $69.99, while some games thought to be PS5 exclusives will also release on the PS4. These games include Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West. Both the digital and physical versions of these games will offer free upgrades to the PlayStation 5 versions, should you choose to eventually play on the next-gen console.
Additionally, we know that the PS4 community will transition to PS5 at different times, and we’re happy to announce PS4 versions of some of our exclusives. Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Sackboy A Big Adventure, and Horizon Forbidden West will also launch on PS4. While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high-speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch. The PS4 digital versions of launch games include a free upgrade on both PS5 consoles, while the PS4 disc versions of these games include a free upgrade on the PS5 with Ultra HD Blu-Ray disc drive.
The current launch lineup for the PlayStation 5 will focus on 5 titles from first party studious: Astro's Playroom, which comes pre-installed with the console, Demon's Souls which retails for $69.99 in North America, Destruction All Stars, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and Sackboy: A Big Adventure.
